Step 1. Load blu-ray/DVD movie and videos the Blackberry Torch Converter for Mac.
Run the Blackberry Torch Converter Ultimate, click “BD/DVD Folder” to load your DVD or Blu-ray disc, and click “Add Video” to load your video files like MTS/M2TS, MKV, MOV, TOD, TiVo, etc. It may take a few seconds to load your Blu-Ray movie from target BD drive. To combine several items (video, DVD and blu-ray movie) into a single file, you need tick off the checkbox of “Merge into one file”. (Note that a BD drive is necessary for ripping blu-ray disc) 

The DVD movie is displayed in a directory. Click the triangle arrow to expand the directory for checking movie chapters. Basically the main movie is included in the first Title, so you can check the main title (usually the one with longest duration) only and leave other chapters unchecked. You may also view movie chapters and videos in preview window.


Step 2. Set audio track and subtitles for selected chapters.

You can select audio track and subtitle (if necessary) for blu-ray and DVD movies. Click on the Audio box and select an audio track with desired language. Set subtitles in the same way. There is a box of “Force Subtitles” too. When you set English as subtitle and check the box of “Force Subtitles”, the subtitle appears only when languages other than English are spoken. For example, in the movie Avatar, I select English subtitle and set Force Subtitles, the subtitle appears only when the Navi language is spoken.


Step 3. Set Blackberry Torch friendly output format.
Click on the “Format” bar and there are various output formats for you to choose from. As we’re converting videos to Blackberry Torch 9800, you may follow “Blackberry”-> “Blackberry Bold 9000 (*.wmv) or “Blackberry Storm Series (*.mp4). This former gives video of 480*320, and the latter 480*360 (full screen display on Blackberry Torch) and is recommended for converting DVD and SD videos of 4:3. If you’re converting blu-ray movie and would not like a stretched image, you may click on “Settings” and set Video Size to 480*272. It will look fine on Blackberry Torch. If you’d like to create Blackberry Torch video of better quality, just set bit rate up.


Step 4. Start converting blu-rays, DVDs and Videos to Blackberry Torch optimized video files.
Now click "Convert" button to start ripping Blu-ray and DVD movie to Blackberry Torch, or converting video to customized Blackberry Torch videos. Wait till the conversion finished. Usually the Video to Blackberry Torch Converter does not let you wait long. But you may check "Shut down computer after conversion" and leave it be when ripping blu-ray movie. Once the conversion task is finished, you can click “Open” button to get the final output files for your Blackberry Torch.
